~shabby love~

Happy Friday everyone!!

well there's been rumors that the
sun might shine today.....
so far...nothin'.  


you all may think I'm complaining....
sniveling...whining...etc...
well ~ yes.  as a matter of fact...
I am.


because, you see....
we have had rain the last 30 of 31 days....
it's rained 6.43 inches in March
5th wettest on record.....
we did however finally reach 60 degrees
for the first time (this year) yesterday.

so yes....I'm complaining....
I want SUN!
just a little ~ even an hour a day would suffice!


it's starting to look like I'll have to leave town
in order to get some sun....
I seriously have forgotten what it feels like...!


anyhoo....I was drooling  looking at the Shabby Chic
website earlier....what a bunch of eye candy!

I thought you might enjoy it too.....


it is just pure delicious-ness....
yumm-o
loveliness....
her style never goes out....
I never tire of it...


it's just so beautiful & serene.....


who could tire of chippy and white?


how does one ever tire of worn wood, or painted furniture ????
or old linens,  ironstone or chandeliers???


I am quite certain it's impossible.....I'll love it forever.....


what an inspiration Rachel Ashwell has
been to the design world....

on another note ~
I've been working on a couple custom
orders this week & loved them so much
I had to add them to the store....

first up ~


this collection has the perfect blend of
rustic romance.....

the fabric is distressed, and softened...
nubby and full of texture...



there's some lovely ruffle pillows and
pillowcases that go with....


you can find the pillowcases here

another custom order I recently completed
is the....



she's very similar to the


except she is made with a beautiful cream linen
and without any graphics....


she's so feminine and romantic...
and I am simply in love with the cream linen....
yummy.


if you'd like to take a closer look skip
on over to my Etsy store

~*~

next week is spring break for us....
yay!!! 
Mr. T & T will be out of town on business
so it'll be me & the girls for most of the week.

But we're going to have some fun!
maybe head to the beach or something.
{that's assuming it's not pouring & freezing over
there....;) }


Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!



xo,



Shellagh

Oh Shellagh- You have rain and we have snow! Snow and more snow coming! How can it be April 1st? I cannot wait until Spring hits here full force. Your chair covers are beautiful and I'm sure they will fly out of your shop. Happy Friday- Diana

Hi Shellagh,
We have some sunshine here on the coast, but not as much as we should for this time of year.

I love the chair covers. They are so soft and romantic looking. Love the photos too.

Loving your gorgeous chair covers, wish I could afford a few!!!

XOXO,

For the love of shabby! I feel like I'm home when I see Rachel's work. I hope your weather gets sunny soon. I hate to tell you we are having beautiful weather today after 2 days of big storms. It will come for you.
Enjoy your weekend!

Theresa said...

I think I could live with it forever too! Your linens and the chairs are beautiful, Rachel will be looking for you soon! Have a great weekend! xoxo

June said...

Oh I could look at Rachel's decorating all day long.
So sorry you haven't seen the sun either. Today was pretty beautiful here today though, but rain tomorrow.

I love you beautiful bedding and slipcovers Shellagh. You make the loveliest things.

You can't complain living on the west side of the Cascades! That is what the west side is...RAIN. Move to east side...Yakima is SUNNY AND WARM! You can come stay with my hubs and I if you want.

A Rosy Note said...

Oh, love all these pretty pictures! And that beautiful bedding that you made is gorgeous.

The weather here has been pretty awful too. I feel like it's never going to end. It got up to a balmy 59 degrees today and I was absolutely thrilled...how sad.

Ah, Shellagh.....I am with ya, girlie! We left beautiful sunshiney weather in FL last week and came home to cloudy 40 degree weather. Ugh! At least we haven't had the rain you've had, you poor thing! Just keep those beautiful photos comin'. They sure help lift our spirits! :)

Oh, and amazing work on your textiles! Beeeeautiful!!!!!

Trade you...do you like snow in April...cause I don't !!!!These photos are to die for!! x0

The Sterling Cherub said...

Love the sun, it’s the extreme heat I can do without (I’m in southern California, it can get SUPER hot here because we are a desert environment)!

I have a bed very similar to the one in your first picture. Right now it has a mahogany finish, I am going to paint it white. It’s just beautiful, and I would not be able to take a paint brush to it if it were an heirloom or an antique, so it’s a good thing it was a bed used on a photo set for displaying high-end linens! It’s new, and not heirloom quality, so I shall paint it with abandon!

Love your slip covers. So very pretty! You have such talent!

Best,

Kimberly
